. >> republican house speaker john boehner responds to president obama's request for money to deal with the immigration crisis. >> our priorities are clear. take care of these children, return them safely home to their home countries, to their families and secure the border. i sent a letter to the president laying out specific actions that he should take to address the crisis. including sending in the national guard. the national guard is uniquely qualified to address these types of humanitarian crises and utilizing their -- free up border agents, at the focus on their job, but securing the border. now, the president said yesterday he'd consider doing that only if he gets more money but no strings attached. in other words, he won't do it for the kids, it's all about politics. this is a problem of the president's own making. he's been president for five and a half years. when is he going to take responsibility for something? >> question, is this a problem of the president's own making? as speaker boehner asserts? >> i think to some degree, it is, and i think that's why john boehner
pli, i think we know sadly immigration reform is deads for this year. look, when john boehner has said it, when the president has said it, when congress, the republican working on it has been told that by leadership, that it's not going to be brought up, i think, you know, at that point even i have to say yes, it's dead for the year, something that's very painful for me to say. it doesn't mean that it can't be brought up next year. but i think the urgency right now is to take care of this current crisis because the optics of this crisis are just real bad. >> thanks, guys. nice to see both of you. thank you. >> thank you. >>> imagine walking out of a hotel, seeing paparazzi everywhere, stepping into a limo, whisked off to an exclusive hotspot. it may be just another day for celebrities but now everyone can experience that. of course for a price. if frustration and paperwork decrease... the gap begins to close. so let's simplify things. let's close the gap between people and care. 58 seconds on the clock, what am i thinking about? foreign markets. asian debt that recognizes the shift in

? if the house doesn't act. i believe he always believed that john boehner was his partner on this. >> now that he hasn't and you're going back at the end of july, you're going to tell them what you expect him to do. would that include -- could he grant work permits to all those undocumenteds, do think he could do that by executive action? >> i think he can begin to do it and i think he can reach that goal, yes. >> you start small and build up? >> i think he can reach all of them. i think we should have some conversations. i don't want to preclude what the president -- i hope the president says this is the beginning, even if it is the end. just in case someone comes up with another idea. this is a new area, right? i think this is a moment for the president to stand up and say, the country believes we should reform our immigration system. 68 senators including john mccain. >> republicans -- some are upset with what he did for the dreamers. they were going to do it for 8 or 9 million more, they will go ballistic and say it is unconstitutional and illegal. >> al, they said to me, luis, we wan
boehner in particular said to get it done quickly before congress goes out for recess. >> and there's a clear need to act. $3.7 dbillion, that's a lot of money. tyler, do you they they'll act soon? >> if you have a boat that's leaking, you start to bail water, but also you look for holes and try to fix them. this just buys more buckets. the border is still not going to be secure. and it's not really a republican or democratic problem. it's a problem, we don't have a great idea of what should be done. >> and republicans have said, how exactly are you going to spend this? governor rick perry calling for 1,000 national guard troops. the white house saying this is a temporary solution. what do you think? >> well, that's exactly right. as i said, i do believe there's some willingness to deal, but there's no appetite to deal with camp hencive immigration reform solutions. so, it's ironic that the president is being accused of not doing enough, when it was only on the democratic side in 2006 to deal with immigration reform. and with eric cantor's loss earlier this year, that went out the w
of fame in 2002 and leave behind music that spans two decades and nearly 40 albums. well, john boehner is not backing down from the threat to sue the president. is it a stand or political power play? >> it's a political stunt that's going to waste months of america's time. >> and he calls himself a real estate daredevil, and he says the time to cash in on the real estate market is now. you will hear from frank joining us live. stay with us for that, folks.

suggest. cancel the recess. if speaker boehner doesn't feel we have enough time to take this up, cancel the recess. monday morning, go to the floor of the house, announce we're canceling the recess and we will take up immigration reform. we can get it done. it's not that we don't have time. so to me there isn't anything that would prevent us from taking this up except the will to do it. >> all right, representative, thank you so much for your time. >> thank you. >> ahead, the prodigal son returns. why some say he should not have rejoined his one team that had nothing to do with playing basketball. piano tuners were just as simple? thanks to angie's list, now it is. start shopping online from a list of top-rated providers. visit angieslist.com today.

and in many cases their families to enter our country illegally. i don't know how speaker boehner and the republican house leadership will respond to the president's request. but this president, in creating this crisis, has made a mockery out of the office he holds and the constitutional duties he refuses to honor. this time, mr. speaker, please, let the president go in the company that he so strongly prefers. let him go it alone. we're coming right back. >> the obama administration means to bring in as many illegal immigrants as it can, being sent to processing centers across the country without notice or community approval. a california town fights back. murrieta mayor, allen long, our guest here next. >>> a third group of illegal immigrants arriving in san diego earlier today, the 140 illegal immigrants flown in from texas. they were bussed to a processing center. about 100 people protesting their arrival in nearby murrieta demonstrators last week blocked buses carrying illegal immigrants to a local border patrol facility. joining us now is the mayor of murrieta, alan long. ala
opposition to the minimum wage, why not have the courage to vote that way. instead, john boehner is too afraid politically, because he knows that most of america is going to support the raise of the minimum wage. >> this shouldn't be a federal issue, and that is where we are coming from, and this is not their problem as gary b. eloquently said, it is a market-driven issue, and that is where it should be. >> and back to the economy, and john, i want you to jump in, please. >> this needs to be fixed. and this arguing of the john boehner and stop with the stupid politics. that is what is wrong with this country, you want to blame the other side. i agree with jonas that you need to index it for inflation , but it needs so go to the state instead of the federal government, because the economy is so divergent from the silicon valley to mississippi, that you have so divergent needs that it needs to go to voters and that is one thing i need to agree with mark on. >> and the baseline minimum wage that it can't be below, and the states should be setting the min mum wages as well. there are a lot
businesses and help families. >> that same day, house speaker john boehner let it the rip when he announced, remember he announced he was suing the president this week, and so he shot back and asked if republicans will bear the blame if they don't approve the nearly $4 billion the president wants to address the crisis. >> listen, this is a problem of the president's own making. he's been president for five and a half years, when's he going to take responsibility for something? >> it's getting real in washington. with me at the table, democratic pollster, juan, president and general council for the organization latino justice and lenny request republican strategist and senior vice president of heinz communication, nice to have you here. >> thank you. >> i don't mind when my president is the letting it rip. he's like hey, i have no more elections to run for, but is that a fair assessment of what's really happening here because honestly, the white house sounds like they want to send the children home? >> well, it's not just about whether or not we send the kids home, it's about how they need l
of homeland security not to per sue for low-risk immigrants. house speaker john boehner laid out the meat for what he says is the forthcoming lawsuit against the president, executive authority relative to obamaca c.a.r.e. c.a.r.e. -- obama c.a.r.e. >> if republicans refuse to work with this president to finally solve this immigration issue, which we have been facing for more than a decade, and there has been a bill languishing in congress called the senate immigration bill, that could have mitigated this crisis, and the president has given republicans all the room they need to try to work with him on this. if at the end of the day they refuse, yes, i do think he should act alone, because this is a desperate situation that we're facing now. the immigration issue has now become an immigration crisis, and we're now seeing that everything that he's asking for to fix the current crisis at land with these children crossing at the border, that republicans are now balking at even giving him help in fixing that. so republicans can't have it both ways. they can't scream that this president is not d
from chase. so you can. >>> it's been two weeks since speaker john boehner first announced he would ask the house to bring a lawsuit against president obama's use of executive action. which executive actions? he didn't seem to know yet. >> what specific executive action are you planning to challenge in court? >> when i make that decision, i'll let you know. >> this week speaker boehner made his decision. he says he is going to sue obama over the affordable care act. take that, obama care. the lawsuit takes issue with president obama's decision to delay the affordable care act's employer mandate. that is the decision that gave companies with full-time employees an extra year to provide health insurance for their workers. what makes this curious is that the delay is also something that the overwhelming majority of house republicans voted to do after president obama announced the -- yeah, the delay. but anyway, by doing that boehner contends the president changed the health care law without a vote of congress effectively creating his own law. if this president can get away with making his
john boehner when he said comprehensive immigration reform is not going to happen in this term. it will not happen before the election or by the end of the year. what they are saying to him is they are going to have to do something on your own. they want to urge the president to do bold steps. back in 2012, you might remember, he had a policy of deferred action, stopping deportation of many of the people who had come here illegally. they want to expand that to millions more. he is getting information. he has people doing research about what kind of executive actions he can take. he is expecting a report from jeh johnson about the situation at the border. and it's going to be interesting to see how far he is willing to go with these executive actions. but there is a lot of pressure on the white house right now, both from immigration groups and from the congressional hispanic caucus and other progress if's who want to see the president take bold executive actions with congress looking like they are not going to do anything on immigration reform and pushing back on this $3.7 billi
. and this reversal isn't just playing out on the house floor, itself. it's apparently so important to speaker boehner that he's actually suing the president over the delay. recall, of course, conservatives spent months on a very long list of claims about the president overstepping his executive authorities in some way. when the president signed a climate change order, they called it a sweeping takeover. when the president laid out that executive order on guns, the republicans called it a power grab. when he signed that minimum wage order for federal contractors, a pretty popular thing, by the way, they said it was a terrible policy that would hurt workers by paying them more and outside his authority. there were op-peds detailing the many times this imperial presidency had overreached. some from the very lawyers republicans were consulting with for this new lawsuit that we're hearing all about. now they say he was gutting large swaths of federal laws from immigration, to welfare reform, to education. he's even legalizing pot. >> are you planning to initiate a lawsuit against the obama administration
channel sunday at 8:00 p.m. >>> house speaker john boehner saying lawsuit will focus on the unilateral changes to obamacare, specifically the administration's decision to delay the employer mandate. the speaker outlined a strategy in a statement last night. he said, quote, if this president can get away with making his own laws, future presidents will have the ability to as well. the house rules committee is scheduled to take up the matter next wednesday, and if he is allowed to make up his own laws, one suspects that a third term might be in the offing. >>> another court victory in the search for answers in the irs conservative targeting scandal. a second federal judge has now ordered the internal revenue service to explain how the irs lost e-mails from lois lerner, the conservative watchdog group judicial watch and the tea party group true the vote have filed separate lawsuit against the irs. both have now won favorable rulings in court and their quest to uncover what they call an irs cover-up. >>> meanwhile house republicans raising the pressure on lerner. republican congressman ste
boehner lawsuit. what will that rules session look like? >> you will see both sides harshing out the argues of why they can or cannot sue the president. you have the democrats who are bringing in high profile witnesses, a former assistant attorney general, you have simon lazarus and they are going to argue this suit has no standing and the house republicans should not be allowed to go forward. and you is two noted constitutional experts. jonathan turley and elizabeth foley who is a professor in florida and they will argue why the house does have standing to sue the president over his executive actions on the employer mandated obamacare. >> they are churnging through the spending bill. what is ahead? >> the irs appreciations is going to come up. this is a chance for house republicans to punish the irs for that tea party targeting controversy and other controversies. so decrease funding there is ahead for the irs. >> a headline shows john cornen and texas gop to obama, don't mess with us. this is part of the statement that the senator was down in texas meeting with governor perry a
surrounding one of his latest columns. >> house speaker john boehner was joined by nancy pelosi in a bipartisan group of representatives to formally sign the work force innovation and opportunity act. this is about 10 minutes. >> good morning, everyone. hr-803. a good job retraining bill that will help many people in america have better access through the kind of skills that are needed in today's workforce. you know, there are about four million job openings in america, and about four million americans looking for work. but the skills needed for those jobs aren't held by the four million people looking for work. so what this bill does is consolidate a number of job training programs, provides flexibility at the local level. in addition to all that, this is a great opportunity for us to show that we can't get things done. listen to the -- that we can get things done. listen to the american people because their priorities are our priorities. with that, i'll turn it over. >> thank you very much, mr. speaker, for bringing us together. thank you for your leadership. thank you to 0 th
pelosi his gender is an issue? if speaker john boehner made a similar chent about female justices nancy pelosi would be crying sexism. the five men in the hobby lobby majority did not determine what couldn't exceptions are legal nor did they quote get down to specifics. news flash, all birth control legal before this decision remains legal today the high court found a religious freedom law co-sponsored by nancy pelosi sometimes protects violations from violating their religious beliefs. neither the high court nor lobby lobby took issue with nancy sebelious mignons that companies cover birth control, but the majority did say hobby lobby had the right to reject to four forms of birth control that happened to terminate a fertilized egg. the diaphragm was never discussed which miss pelosi should know since she famously promised us after obamacare was passed we'd know what was it in. >> i was so outraged my hair was standing on edge. today, the fact checking web site politifact looked at miss pelosi's statement and now, raided it false. when calling her office for a statement her media perso
and the republicans, and then there's the teañparty. and poor speaker boehner is trying to be the head of two parties at one time, and they're diametrically opposed. what we have to do is get beyond the fear factor. i keep saying fear not. do the right thing. have the courage to do the right thing. and the fact is is that real republicans, not fearful, frightened republicans, and not tea party people, but real republicans who are business republicans know we need it. so we've got a commitment on their part that we need it. we just have to make it happen politically. >> i'm curious as to how one goes about the business of having meaningful conversation with one who you share your fundamental core christian beliefs with but disagree with potically. i mean, you and paul ryan -- i want to go back to this. i don't want to jump too fast on this. when you two of you get together, you do come from the same spiritual place, and you're both good catholics, but then the politics get involved. how do you come out of those conversations with any sort of good use of time? >> well, what i try to do is to connect th
columns, sunday night at 8 p.m. eastern on c-span's q&a. >> house speaker john boehner was joined by nancy pelosi and a bipartisan group of signsentatives to formally the workforce innovation and opportunity act. this is about 10 minutes. >> good morning, everyone. thanks to the hard work of the members who are here, in a few minutes i will sign hr 303, a bill that will help americans have access to the skills needed in today's workforce. there are about 4 million job openings in america and about 4 million americans looking for work am a but the skills needed for those jobs are not held by the 4 million people looking for work. this bill does is consolidate job-training programs and provide flexibility at the local level. in addition to all of that, this is a great opportunity for us to show that we can get things done. we can listen to the american people and work together on their behalf because their priorities, frankly, are our priorities. with that i will turn it over. >> thank you very much, mr. speaker, for bringing us together. inc. you for your leadership. -- thank you for your l
gender is an issue? if speaker boehner made a comment about the female justices, nancy pelosi would be crying sexism, and that's what she's guilty of here. moreover, the five men in the hobby lobby did not, i repeat, did not, quote, determine what contraceptions are legal, nor did they, quote, get down to the specifics of whether a woman should use a diaphragm, end quote. what a gross misrepresentation. news flash, all birth control that was legal before this decision remains legal today. the high court simply found that a religious freedom law, which was cosponsored by none other than, wait for it, nancy pelosi, sometimes protecting corporations from being forced to violate their religious believes. she cosponsored the law that gave them that right. nigh to the high court nor hobby lobby took issues of mandating behind closed doors with obamacare was passed that companies cover 16 forms of birth control, but they had the right to covering just four forms of birth control that happen to terminate a fertilized egg, which some believe is abortion. the diaphragm was never discussed. it
, is the speaker john boehner saying he's going to sue the pre-of the united states because the president's overstepped his line as president. is there merit in this suit? is it a good idea? what do you think? >> there's some merit but i, of course, have sympathy for both sides. you normally pass a big piece of legislation like the aca, the healthcare bill. and everybody cooperates to fix it. but since we're so dysfunctional, we can't do that. so the president is left saying, well, we've got to really change the law to drop some things to make it worker at least delay it. and so he goes ahead and does that for probably some defensible reason, some political reasons, but it is a pretty bold step for the president to do tuft off the top of his head. it really does delay and probably wipe out a pretty significant part of the law. so when boehner says i'm suing because the president can't just change the law without congressional approval, technically, he's right. but it does grow out of the general dysfunction where you don't have two parties working to make an already passed law function. >

the emergency aid, i'm willing to change the law. how do we solve the problem? boehner is sitting on his butt. >> i think the speaker has to finally say to his tea party constituency, look, we have a humanitarian crisis. 50,000 kids. the borders are porous. a deal needs to be made in exchange for the president getting 3.7 billion which will be more judges. it will will be detention centers. what's really needed is cracking down on smugglers and traffickers. the kids are victims. but there are a lot of bad people involved in this. in exchange, you clarify the law. you basically plug the loophole i believe has become a problem. >> it's doable. >> it's doable. the problem is this dysfunctional congress may not act before the august recess. if it happens this crisis will get to $100,000 kids by the end of the fiscal year. i saw it. >> howard, listen to this. the same question. what happens when we get more pictures of kids sleeping on the floors of bathrooms? they are pretty well dressed, these kids. their parents put their best on them. they have sneakers like i grew up with, polo shirts. they l
boehner has released details of his lawsuit against president obama over what republicans insist is executive overreach. the committee hearing is expected next week. chief congressional correspondent mike emanuscripts sell on capitol hill tonight. >> reporter: signing a jobs training bill a rare bipartisan moment even though speaker john boehner and nancy pelosi disagree on plans for the house to sue president obama. despite house republicans having a laundry list of examples of executive overreach the suit will focus on the president's unilateral actions on the employer mandate of obamacare. >> it's repetitive changes he's made to the law without coming back to congress and just doing it at his own pleasure and own whims. >> reporter: the president signed the affordable care act in 2010 when nancy pelosi was speaker but last year with boehner and republicans leading the house mr. obama postponed the employer mandate and penalties for failing to comply with it. >> every american would want to know can a president arbitrarily waive any law they disagree with when they took an oat

"the current president believes he has the power to make his own laws, at times even boasting about it." there you have it. the two leaders of the gop on the same page. they would rather sue the president for delaying part of the health care law than focus on real issues. speaker boehner has no vote scheduled on immigration, minimum wage, unemployment insurance or equal pay for equal work. instead, they are busy with political stunts exposing their own hypocrisy. in 2006, president bush was rolling out a new health care law. medicare part d. as a key deadline approach ed te president decided low income seniors should have more time to sign up. so he waived the deadline. >> as we head for a may 15 deadline, if you are eligible for extra help, if you are a low income senior the deadline doesn't apply to you. you can apply after may 15 without penalty. >> a republican president delaying part of a health care law. democrats didn't sue or threaten to impeach. it would have been are ridiculous and harmful to the country. yet that's exactly what republicans are doing now. jo

's new suit will be a tight fit. for weeks john boehner has been threatening to slap the president of the united states with a lawsuit over his broad use of executive authority. but republicans have been playing the details close to the vest shall we say. now we're finally learning some of the specifics. despite executive orders and actions on everything from immigration to the minimum wage for workers to the environment, for john boehner it apparently all comes down to obamacare, a sharp dressed issue that never goes out of style for the republican base. dana bash is here. so dana, let me make sure i understand it. boehner wants to sue president obama for giving businesses a delay on that obamacare mandate. is that right? >> that's right. that's the issue that they decided to hone in on. however, they say that they believe based on the legal advice they've been getting, they've been looking into this for months that is their best chance at succeeding in a lawsuit against the president for any kind of executive action because they believe that he absolutely had no grounds to do tha
, you must be the other guy. >> i think this is a low point for boehner and obama working together. so what's john boehner's plan? >> it is about putting political points on the board. >> i think he gains nothing. >> come on, speaker boehner, enough with the stunts. >> it is a freaky friday john boehner edition. the house speaker levees a lawsuit against the president for not only doing his job but doing what house republicans wanted him to do. last night, they released a draft resolution saying the lawsuit against the president will focus on changes to the patient protection and the affordable care act. speaker boehner claims the president violated the constitution when he delayed health law's mandate for businesses without getting the go ahead from congress first. in an irony worthy of alanis more i set, the house gop is planning to sue the president over delaying the employer mandate. they voted themselves to delay the employer mandate a year ago next thursday. potentially more problematic for the gop than spending taxpayer money suing the president over something they agree with in
